  1. Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film Clouds of Glass

    Slight little thing, but as a demonstration of the expressive possibilities of color film it has few equals.

  2. εξώτερο Διάστημα's rating of the film Clouds of Glass

  3. José Neves's rating of the film Clouds of Glass

    In brief time we are left with the feeling of a great symphonic epic, that through a beautiful and accurate writing of images, in conjunction with a musical score that invokes feelings "mieux que nature", is inscribed in memory with a great breath of imagination. And, also, with the oblique geometry of Eisenstein's framework in full splendor.

  4.'s rating of the film Clouds of Glass

    A minor masterpiece from Vláčil that perhaps served as a trial run for the elegant counterpointing of pure visual cinema with music that distinguishes his cinema. The direction is essentially flawless, but the film does lack two critical elements: a substantial raison d'être and a great composer. A few years later he would find both and produce one of the most beautiful films I've yet seen, THE WHITE DOVE (1960).
